    Default Wrought Iron Fencing

    We have decorative white wrought iron on our front porch and I am starting to see spots of rust coming through the paint. We just moved in this last winter. Does anyone know a way to stop the rust so I'm not painting this every year??

    Have you tried a primer coat of Rustoleum. Then white (probably rustoleum). I repainted my old front railings this way a couple of years ago and it is holding up really well.

    Try taking a stiff wire brush to the wrought iron rust spots and scrubbing away the rust. Then, spray the whole piece with a Rustoleum white. We did this to our mailbox post several years ago in black. (We have neighborhood covenants and replacing the supplied mailbox is pricey!) The Rustoleum worked great and DH keeps an eye on the post and gives it a shot if any rust is detected.

    Thanks Laine and Diane for your help! I guess I'll be looking for some Rustoleum to paint my wrought iron with.
